We had arranged to meet at Aberthaw by the Power station that I had passed literally days before on my first trip with Taran and Stu, on the way a massive hail storm hit and turned the roads white, with thunder and lightening as well. I wonder if a carbon paddle is a good conductor of electricity. On arrival at the beach all I could see was white but it wasn't snow this time, the sea was alive and throwing a tantrum. After putting my eyes back in, I was let off the hook, phew. The plan had changed, we were going to Barry Old Harbour.
Actually guys , the duck pond is looking a bit 'interesting today' do you fancy that instead, was the thought that passed through my head on the way to the harbour. The weather today couldn't make its mind up, one minute sun, then hail, then wind.
The Old Harbour was sheltered and looked as if it was going to be surftastic.
Ok Stu, it's a camera not a gun :)
We all started to have a surf, some of the waves were quite large but fun. I nearly T-boned Taran when my boat broached on a wave I'd been riding.

All in all I had a really good time, learnt loads and as usual had a laugh, well worth the frozen hands and another sandblasting from hail whilst loading the car.
